“We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided” – J.K. Rowling

The Telugu Association of North America (TANA) founded for the welfare of Telugu people living in North America is bringing the 2017 edition of Business Forum. The changing geopolitical landscape in North America has brought forward the need for Telugu people to stay united and work for collective development. One of the major goals of the Business Forum is to inform and educate the audience on the latest trends and best practices and help them achieve success.

TANA Business Forum will conduct Prerana" and "Medha", during the TANA National Conference, 2017.


We have been consistently hearing the stories of Indians who are making strides internationally and touching lives of millions. These inspiring individuals are setting loft goals and achieving them only to set a higher goal next time. While doing so, they are making people in their community proud and inspiring generations behind them. Listening to them and reading their mind will instill a "Can Do" attitude in the audience. TANA Business Forum has taken up the task of finding such individuals and hear their inspiring stories.


Medha is a platform being created by TANA Business Forum where budding entrepreneurs and startups can showcase their ideas and impress the Venture Capitalists with the idea's business potential. Medha is open to anyone who is passionate about his/her idea. Medha also offers a strong support system to the app to get exposure and flourish.

Please Sign-Up and submit your Medha application here

We will select the ideas and will contact them to walk them through the subsequent process. Instructions will be given on how the pitch can be done. Selected candidates will be given a chance to present before the Venture Capitalists and audience of TANA.
